Make a simple Sautéed Mussels dish!

Updated on December 18, 2014

Delicious Mussles

Seafood is really great when cooked properly and allowing bursting forth with all of its flavors. I‘ve had seafood before that wasn’t seasoned correctly with a taste of blandness in my mouth. My family and I love seafood that is cooked and seasoned properly. We try to always make sure that there are plenty of seasonings in the house because you can never go wrong having plenty of garlic and other spices that can be used in seafood dishes. This recipe for mussels will not only please the eye but also stimulate and invigorate the taste buds. I will provide you with an ingredient list and directions so that you can try this recipe for yourself. This recipe yields four servings!


  1. 2lbs of fresh Mussels
  2. 1 lemon slice
  3. 6tbsp of olive oil
  4. 2 shallots, chopped finely
  5. 1 garlic clove, chopped finely
  6. 1tbsp of chopped fresh parsley
  7. 1/2tsp of sweet paprika
  8. 1/2tsp of dried red pepper flakes


Now scrub your mussels and discard any that will not close when tapped sharply with the back of your knife. Next put your mussels, 1 cup of water and your slice of lemon into a large saucepan. Bring your mussels, lemon and water to boil and cook them for 3-4 minutes. Then begin to remove your mussels as the open up. If there are some that will not open please discard them at this moment. Next take your mussels out of their shells and drain them on paper towels. Then heat your olive oil in a sauté pan, add your mussels to it and cook them while stirring for a minute or two.

Remove your mussels from the pan and add your shallots and garlic to the pan, then cook the mixture, covered, over low heat for 5 minutes until soft. Then remove the pan from the heat and stir in your parsley, paprika and red pepper flakes. Now return your pan to the heat and stir in your mussels and any juice, then cook your mussels briefly so that the heat is completely moving through it. Then viola your sautéed mussels with garlic are ready to eat. I hope that you and your family enjoy this great dish!
